Types of Swimsuits / Swimsuit categories:
The differentiation between bikinis is made on the basis of amount of coverage they offer and in turn, the meters of cloth that is used in manufacturing the bikini.
A typically traditional bikini will enclose the breasts fully and also offer full coverage at the rear and bottom
Brazilian bikinisare different. They may not provide you such modest coverage. These Brazilian bikinis are marked by low rise bottoms and skimpy breast coverage.
A micro bikini also know as a microkini barely offers any coverage at all. But still you would be wearing a bikini!!!
Some most erotic styles are designed to feature strings at the rear and a little triangular piece of cloth at the front. The most extreme styles have just a string at the rear and a tiny triangle of material at the front. The bikini tops may be as small as to provide coverage only at the highest points, at the contours.
One piece as well as two piece swimwear in bold, bright colors, exotic prints, feminine cuts, laces and trimmings may help you grab all that attention you ever desired.
